Our Mission

60-70% of preventable hospital deaths are caused by communication errors. [The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations]

A majority of these deaths are patients who have communication difficulties, such as:

  • refugees and migrants

  • foreign language-speaking patients

  • stroke victims

  • other communication issues and impairments

SpeechBoards aims to provide a free, accessible platform for physicians, nurses, and other medical workers to develop custom communication boards that can bridge the communication barrier between clinician and patient.
